It’s fair to say that Manchester United fans have had a couple of days to forget after failing to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
Followed by Arch rivals Liverpool’s progression to the Champions League finale in dramatic fashion.
And now, Mauricio Pochettino the man they touted to replace Jose Mourinho at the hot seat guiding his Spurs side to a miraculous Champions League finale.
The scenario becomes even more precarious for the Red Devils as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, who they handed the permanent job at Old Trafford hasn’t delivered on the promise he showed in his spell as an interim manager.
Though Poch gets the stick for not winning anything but the conditions under which he’s worked under at Tottenham and delivering the results he has, Miracle is the only word that comes to mind.
"Thank you football. Thank you my players, they are heroes."
"Without football it is impossible to live."
No, thank you 🙏

Spurs’ progression to the Champions League finale has left the United fans scratching their heads wondering if they made the right call in snubbing the Argentine for Solksjaer
Ed Woodward must be really wondering why he did not go all out for Mauricio Pochettino. What a shame.

Pochettino, what a manager! Spurs are gonna takeover Madrid, every bit of it. They’ll outnumber the scousers.

Pochettino is a decent man. And more importantly he seems a genuine man.

We chose Ole over trying to get Pochettino 😂😂

Ole is a legend but should of went for Pochettino and let him build the next dynasty. Don’t think Ole has a clue what to do. #mufc

Whoever wins the Champions League there's no reprieve for Woodward and #mufc now. Ajax (recruitment, well run), Tottenham (recruitment, well run, Pochettino factor) and Liverpool (recruitment, well run, finished behind United last season) have all shown United up this season.

Pochettino will leave Spurs next season
Could well be PSG, Madrid, Bayern or Man City.

Been thinking ever since the Cup final loss to Chelsea that United should put Mauricio Pochettino as the top target to replace Mourinho. Positive style of play, Players like Martial, Pogba etc with new starts, positive energy at the club, manager in his ascendancy. #ManUnited 🔴
